Below is a list of our available Labrador Retrievers. If you don't find the new friend you're looking for on this page, check out our Coming Soon Labs. We typically have approximately 30 Labs in our rescue program at any given time. Labs come into the program and are adopted daily, so this list is ever-changing.
Click each picture to find what our foster families have to say about each of our Labs. Since we don't have a shelter, all our dogs are in foster homes. Our foster parents provide as much information as possible on the behaviors and traits of our dogs.
The adoption fee for an adult Lab is $300. The adoption fee for puppies (6 months and under) is $375.
If you are interested in meeting one of our Labs, the next step is to complete an adoption application. Adoption information and application is found here. If you have questions about the adoption application process, send an email to our Applications Team.

Trey - 8.1 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Chocolate Male - 100+ lbs - Heartworm negative- Est available Late July
My name is Trey. I may look big, but I am a gentle big, people loving baby. I love belly rubs and morning walks. I walk well on a leash and am laid back, especially after my morning walk. I love carrying my red baby dog toy around during walks and I also love playing a gentle game of tug of war with it. I am house broken and know my basic commands. I am good with kids and will fit well in most homes (as long as I am given my mandatory belly rubs). I'm not a huge fan of crates and don't need them. I also prefer to have my family all to myself. I am a little selfish like that right now. I sleep quite well on my dog bed next to the human bed and really just want to be near you.
You may wonder how a wonderful older gentleman came to need a new home. Well, the answer is my other home had a child who has developed allergies to dogs. Of course this makes me sad, because we were very good buddies. So that means I need another great family, one that doesn't need a super energetic puppy or have other dogs but is happy to have a big, gentleman that will just hang out with the family and fit right in pretty fast. If you need a good buddy, let the folks at the resuce know ... hopefully, I'll be meeting you soon!
Jefferson - 3.8 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male (Mixed) - 90 lbs - Available Now
Jefferson is gentle boy with an amazingly loving personality and generally very mellow nature. He is crate trained, potty trained, and rings ‘the bells’ to let us know when he wants outside.
Jefferson may have sheep or goat guarding instincts in his DNA and needs a leader who is willing and able to establish themselves as a natural authority. He has an experienced foster who can tell you all about his training and needs. Jefferson is looking for someone willing to put the effort into being consistent and firm so that he can relax and enjoy the good life. Jefferson loves other dogs and is very social. He has great manners, is really good on a leash (which is important for a big guy) and is a great walker for an active family. He has good energy and enjoys keeping up with others, but has an off switch and loves to chill as well. Jefferson loves car rides and just being with his people and being the big goofball that he is!
*This dog may not meet the breed standard for a Labrador Retriever.
Balloo - 1.8 Year Old Male
Initial Intake Notes: Chocolate - Male - 68.8 lbs. Heartworm Negative. available now
Have you ever seen a bit of chocolate as yummy as me? The wonderful people who rescued me say I am about 1.5 years old but my foster family thinks I may be on the younger side of that number. I am as cute as I can be with lots of energy and curiosity like a youngster just getting to explore life. I have 3 foster sisters and brothers and the younger one plays with me until she gets tired, but the older ones aren’t that interested. I love other dogs and share toys and bones really well. If they will play with me, I am a happy camper.
The rescue doesn’t know my story as I was turned into the shelter as a stray but someone worked with me a lot. My foster family says I am really smart. I pick up on things easily and already knew sit, shake, down, roll over, and stay when I got here. I have a soft mouth and take treats well and would eat them all day if I could. I go in my kennel to eat and sleep there at night without making a peep. I also will go in during the day with a small treat incentive and will stay there quietly after eating, but not if everyone else is out and about! Did I say I ride well in the car too? The transport helper didn’t have to put me in a travel carrier and neither did my foster mom. I laid down in the back and rode like a champ.
I like my foster mom just fine, but I really love my foster dad and the huge teenage boys that live here. My foster mom says she thinks I was a guy’s dog at one time. Who knows – all I know is that I love living in this house and having a family take care of me, but I really want one of my very own. I need a patient family that understands I am still young and have lots of energy and love to explore. I know the command “OFF” because I hear it often. I probably would not do well in a home with super little kids because of my energy and excited play habits or elderly people, as I like to run up behind my foster family and grab one of their legs with my leg so they will stop walking away from me and play with me. An active family that likes to take lots of walks or wants a running partner may be the ticket for me as I am really good on a leash.
Could I be your favorite piece of chocolate?
Alma - 3.2 Year Old Female
Initial intake information: Yellow Female - Heartworm negative - Est available date early to mid-July
Hi! My name is Alma. I’m loving life with my foster family, but ready to meet my forever family. My foster family is working hard to get me back in shape. I’m a little underweight right now, but slowly getting back to where I need to be. My foster family is helping me work on my manners along with building up my confidence. I enjoy playing with my new foster friends and I’m learning from their example as they have welcomed me into their pack. I’ve also been introduced to a couple of cats. They do not bother me, but I have to admit that I'm just a little curious about them. My foster Mom keeps telling me I’m awesome and how proud of me she is on how quickly I have adapted to a new home and “new life”. I look forward to meeting you!!
Foster Note to Alma's future forever family:
Growing up I learned a song “This Little Light of Mine”. When I first met Alma and read her history, I immediately thought of this song. The song reminds us, no matter what happens, to not let people “snuff” out your light. Alma has not lost her light, her hope in humans, or her great spirit.
Emitt - 5.2 Year Old Male
Initial Intake Information: Black - Male - 58 lbs. Heartworm Negative. Est. Available date TBD after arrival in foster home.
Hi! My name is Emitt, I am super sweet, and friendly once I get to know you. I have had ZERO accidents at my foster home and I don't chew anything I'm not supposed to. I'm great at snuggling, walk well on a leash, and I think car rides are really fun. While I am super chill around other dogs when out and about, I am looking for a furry sibling in my new home. I respond well to my foster mom and dad's directions, even when my foster mom dresses me up! I had a rough couple of months in the beginning of my DFW Lab Rescue journey, but I am doing much better now. Few more pounds and I will be ready to go to my forever home!
Crosley - 9.7 Month Old Female
Initial intake information: Black Female - 44 lbs. Heartworm Neg.- Est available Mid-July
Crosley is a sweet, affectionate and playful young and small pup. She loves other dogs, playing, swimming and cuddling up on the sofa, floor or anywhere she can catch some ZZZ's and some love. She will lay loyally beside you or lick and play with your ears, hands, etc. She is gentle and learning sit, down, stay, leave it and all the other important things dogs should know. Crosley is mostly potty trained, smart as a whip and crates pretty easily (although she would prefer to be everywhere you are). She learned the doggie door in record time!!
Aya - 4.1 Year Old Female
Initial intake information: Yellow Female - 94.4 bs - Heartworm negative - avail now
Aya is definitely the leader of the bonded pair ‘Aya & Abby’. Aya is a typical loving, active, playful & beautiful champagne female lab who loves to please. Aya loves to do tricks, especially if treats are involved. She can sit, shake and give a ‘high five’ pat on command. She loves to be near her people and is quite happy laying upon her family’s feet. Aya is very polite and never gets on furniture, unless invited. Aya takes care of her sister Abby and willingly shares everything including dinner/food bowls ... she is a good guard dog in that she definitely lets you know when strangers are near. I think she really does try to talk but this usually occurs only when she needs out or wants attention. Aya gets along well with other dogs, both large and small. She is great with children though will definitely run through kids if playing chase or fetching balls as she gets so excited! Aya is both kennel and house trained.
Aya and her sister Abby are such an easy -care pair. They are a joy to be around!
Note: Aya has to be adopted with her sister Abbie
Abbie - 4.1 Year Old Female
Initial intake information: Silver Chocolate Female 91 lbs Heartworm negative - Avail now
Abby is such a sweetheart! She loves to be petted and given belly rubs; her favorite place is to lay her head in the lap of any of her family members! She is very quiet, hardly ever barks but will give a faint whine when she needs outside. Abby LOVES to carry around a stuffed toy and also loves to play fetch with balls or toys. Abby is quite passive and has no issues with storms, etc - but she will try to hide if people yell. She is great with both small dogs and large dogs, and wonderful with children. Abby was born with multiple bone deformities thus with these physical challenges she is not able to be as active as a normal Lab her age but she sure will try to keep up as she has the biggest heart! She walks well on a leash, listens well, tries to please, can sit, shake and turn circles on command. She is kennel trained and house trained; Abby follows her sister Aya around sharing everything but their favorite thing to share petting hands!
All Abby really needs and wants is lots of love ... she really is the sweetest dog ever!!!
Note: Abbie has to be adopted with her sister Aya
Triggers - 4 Year Old Male

Oaklee - 6.4 Year Old Female
Initial intake information: Yellow female 68 lbs - Heartworm negative - Est available mid/late July
Pike - 7.2 Year Old Male
Initial intake information:Yellow Male - 81 lbs - Heartworm negative - Est available mid/late July
Hi everyone - Pike here. I am what they call an owner surrender to the rescue because my owner became ill and is no longer able to care for me. I am not ashamed to say that I cried like a baby when I was led away, because I loved my people and my brother. But this foster life is not so bad after all and these people have told me they will find me a great home. I have also found out all I have to do is whine a little and I can get most anything I want (interesting).
The last three months I lived in a high rise apartment in downtown Dallas. You meet a lot of people and dogs when you live downtown and I like people and dogs. I was good in the apartment and I was always trusted and never crated. I had a Lab brother that keep me company during the days my owner worked so if you have another dog, we can probably be wonderful friends.
I loved going for walks and I still do. I also love being close to my owner and now my foster. Now I am not able to sleep on their bed so I prefer the crate as a second choice. I go to the door when I need a potty break and I will sit and stare at my leash when I want to go for a walk. I've got good manners, rarely jump up on anyone, love the little kids, and the big and small dogs in this house I love to hang out with. I don’t care about chasing that tennis ball, every time I bring it back they just throw it again. The other thing I don’t like is watching them swim, and it makes me nervous. I don’t swim, so if that is something that happens at your house you can just put me inside.
So - if you want a good dog with no bad habits, then I’m your man! I am super low key and happy to just hang out. Put me on your list now because I'm coming available very soon.
Sugar Bear - 5.2 Month Old Female
Initial intake information: Yellow Female 38 lbs - Heartworm negative - Est available late July
Hello! Sugar Bear here! I am told that I am sweet and snuggly so it’s just the perfect name for me! I am about 5 months old and 38 pounds. I probably won’t be a great big lady lab when I grow up, but I will be a lady for sure. About that…I’ve missed out on some of my training to be a proper lady early in life, so I’m still having to catch up. Foster mom says I’m a good girl though. She says it alllll day long… so I guess I’m doing something right! I can sleep in my crate all night long quietly. I know to go potty outside. I love love love to play with my toys and can entertain myself when I’m not playing with you or others. So for a puppy I’m a pretty calm little girl. And my foster mom says I’m really smart! I can sit when she has a treat or a toy for me, and I am working on doing something when she says ‘stay” but that’s a really hard one! I really like other dogs and have fun playing with whatever and whoever will play with me! Most of all I like PEOPLE and follow my people around like a shadow!
I’m looking for a forever home with people that I can love and have fun with! I will need them to help me be the best dog I can be ! Can’t wait to meet you!

Hello world, I'm Spiritt. I’m a sweet little girl - with the softest, fluffiest coat you’ve ever felt! I love wrestling with my brothers and sisters, and hope to have a fun big yard to play in with lots of grass and tennis balls. I can't wait to meet you and see if we have a love connection!

Turner - 9.7 Month Old Male
Initial intake information: Black Male -58lbs - Heartworm Neg.- Est available Mid-July
Hey - Turner here. Now that I've adjusted to the routine of a nice home, couple of square meals a day and playing in the house and backyard with my foster mom's pack, I'm ready to tell you about myself. I am a sweet, fun and handsome boy (have you seen my eyes!) that just wants to be with you. My foster mom says I'm a typical young guy with the overall calm temperment and energy for a guy way beyond my age. I guess that means I'm handsome and near perfect!
I'm completely potty trained, sort of crate trained (I would prefer not!) and a little on the smaller side. I love to chill, give kisses (sometimes a little too much) and walk pretty well on the leash (although there are lots of things I do want to explore). I can get a little excited when first meeting people and dogs and we are working on that.
I quickly learned to sit for treats, and I've always taken them very sweetly. I learned that counter surfing and picking up the occasional shoe is not the best manners and am 90% there on not mistaking non toys (pillows and shoes) for toys. I'm a smart guy and love training (especially with treats!). My foster mom says I am going to quickly be the most amazing dog for someone lucky!
On the fun side, I love chasing and retrieving the ball and am beginning to think about the pool. I play well with other dogs but sometimes get a little too excited and the older dogs tell me to chill. I know you want me (look at the eyes again!!) so be sure to put me on your list. You will have a life long buddy and family member!
Koolaid - 3.7 Year Old Male
Initial Intake Info: Yellow - Male - 80 lbs. Heartworm Negative. Avail now
Hello wonderful people! Thank you for stopping by to read about me. I am a big (80+lbs) of goofiness’. I love to play with anything I can find. I was raised around little ones, but foster mom thinks due to my size and playfulness, I should stick with the older kids (8+). Now that we have gotten the important stuff out of the way, lets deal with the real stuff.
I am house and crate trained. I love to fetch, doesn’t really matter what you throw, I will go get it. I like to be near you when possible, so close that bathroom door! I’m a pretty strong puller while on a leash, so foster mom is training me to use a gentle leader. There are 4 resident dogs here and I don’t have any issues with any of them. I would love to have some kids to play with, an active outdoors person(s) to take me places or plenty of yard space to run. I am an active boy that enjoys helping with whatever you might be doing. I’m no couch potato, I have never even been on a couch, so your furniture is safe with me.
Can’t wait to meet my new forever family!
Captain Henry - 8 Year Old Male
Initial Intake Info: Yellow - Male - 96 lbs. Available now.
Hi there friends, I’m Captain Henry! I might be considered a little old, but don’t let that fool you, I still love to play and be active. With age comes wisdom and I’m a very smart boy. I have perfect house manners and although I am crate trained, I can be trusted in the house. I won’t bother your things, not even the counters or the trash! I have 3 foster dog siblings and we all get along perfectly, I even have 2 cat siblings but they don’t like when I chase them. My foster mom says I’m funny and sweet while being a perfect gentleman. I don’t really know how I ended up here but I keep hearing them say I must have been loved a lot because I’m a happy well-mannered pup. I really just want a family of my own to love again. Could that be you? Add me to your list if your looking for furry companion that will love you with his whole heart, keep you laughing, and wondering how you got so lucky.
Brownwood - 7.3 Month Old Male
Initial Intake Info: Black - Male - 54.6 lbs. Heartworm Negative. Available now.
Hi! Brownwood here. I am a tall, handsome fellow with a beautiful, shiny coat. You might assume from my name that I might be a dull or mellow guy, but nothing could be further from the truth. My fosters say I'm the happiest, friendliest dog they know. Everyone I meet is my best friend and I am great around kids and other dogs too. I am still young so I have a lot of energy and love to play with toys, especially the ones that squeak or make noises. I enjoy walks very much, and my foster mom says I'm quite good on a leash, especially for my age. I don't mind being in my crate at all and sometimes, I prefer it. My manners are pretty good as I don't jump much and I know some commands. I can go all night without needing to be let out, but I still need to be watched during the day just to be sure I don't have an accident. I'm looking for my forever family so if you like to give tummy rubs, I'm your guy!
